The Spanish Batman

One of the brands I work on has a name that is difficult to trademark as it is in common usage.

I suspect there are many brands in a similar situation.

Batman however is probably not one of them.

The trademark of Batman belongs to DC Comics who have just launched a copyright infringement lawsuit against the Spanish football club Valencia.

A quick peak at the Valencia logo and it's easy to see why.

Only problem is the football club was in existence long before Batman was created.

Very interested to see how this pans out.
